    For folks who yearn to be able to get their local FM radio stations on their smartphones, Sprint and Emmis have taken a big step forward. Sprint just announced that the NextRadio interactive FM app is now available for the Sprint HTC One and EVO 4G LTE. Besides just the advantages of having FM radio functionality on these devices, it also uses 1/3rd less power than streaming music from the internet. Here's a quote with more of the details,

    Sound off if you would like to see this capability come to more phones and carriers in the future. For more info, here's a link to the NextRadio website: NextRadio

    Thanks for the tip, Str8Aro!

    Back when Alltel was around I had an LG rhythm and it was a great phone. I could pick up radio stations just had to use head phones and it had an fm transmitter built in. That was my favorite "dumb" phone.

    My Thunderbolt had an FM radio. I used it once just to try it. I'll pass unless it supports the HD-Radio (digital broadcast) format.
